The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is a welcoming and inclusive community where we honor our students, staff and faculty. We are committed to integrating diversity into all aspects of our campus in order to increase access and success for everyone. UWSP values diversity in lived experiences and identities, embracing differences in sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, and in a wide range of physical and mental abilities.

As the Gender and Sexuality Outreach Coordinator, Michelle Fournier supervises the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) located in room 206 of the Dreyfus University Center and advises the Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) student organization. Born and raised in Stevens Point, Michelle attended UWSP for two years before transferring and graduating from UW-Madison with a bachelor's degree in psychology. After spending time in the mountains of Colorado and Alaska, Michelle returned to Stevens Point and worked with CAP Services at the Family Crisis Center for two years before leaving to pursue a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Minnesota. As a gay, female-identified, masculine presenting person, Michelle understands the necessity for finding safe and supportive people and environments on campus and is appreciative of the continued emphasis UWSP has placed on supporting students with marginalized identities. Michelle's professional journey over the past twenty years includes working as an early childhood educator, a school social worker, a community organizer and supporting people as a counselor in crisis services and victim advocacy. For the past six years Michelle has been supervising bachelor's and master's level social work students in their field placements at various locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area in Minnesota. As a social justice advocate, Michelle insists on an anti-oppression framework that honors intersectional identities and lived experiences. Michelle embraces every moment as an opportunity for growth and holistically engages in the development of students. (Michelle also goes by Mitch or Mitchell and uses she/her and they/them pronouns.)
